From Kiwi & Bacon Designs
The other day, I was joking to a friend about how I’ve never seen him with a rakhi on and whether it was because he goes underground on that day. He laughed coyly and then went on to mention how, as much as he appreciates the sentiments behind a rakhi, he just finds them too tacky to wear outside the house and likes to take them off ASAP. What he said stayed with me and of course, I, being the shopaholic and research freak that I am, decided to go on a spree to find rakhis that aren’t heavily embellished and over-the-top—something the men in our life would happily wear.
Well, if you’re on a similar hunt, then you’re in luck, because we have found not one but several modern, unique, and minimal designs that not only make a good rakhi, but will also serve as a great everyday accessory later on. If you’re a fan of Dubai-based Braided Tales, chances are you’re going to love these too! Just scroll down and shop, and don’t forget to share your favorites with us in the comments section below.
Annnnnd here it is, the best for last! The rakhi from Parvati Villa below is NOT for your brother but for the #womenofshakti in your life! Cool, isn’t it?! As they put it, they want to revolutionize Raksha Bandhan a little bit, so for every brother you tie a rakhi to, they want you to tie a “Shakti” rakhi to a woman in your life who also gives you strength. And it gets even better; their goal is to #spreadtheshakti to over a 1000 women, so you can order up to 3 rakhis for absolutely FREE. Order soon to be a part of the revolution too!
